of their lives. >> drew, what about obama care? wasn't that supposed to keep hospital costs down? >> it was. but in reality, jake, there is nothing in obama care aimed at reducing the actual costs of health care. some are arguing that obama care, the forcing of everybody to be in this insurance plan or pay a penalty, is actually going to increase the costs we are paying because in very simple economic terms, you're increasing the amount of people who will be paying for all the health care, increasing demand, and there's really no incentive for the suppliers like these hospitals, to charge any less. steven bril, the author of the "time magazine" report said with obama care we've changed the rules related to who pays for what, but we haven't done much to change the prices of what we're paying. >> where does all this profit end up? >> yeah, it is flowing right into the hands of hospitals and the insurers. tomorrow night, jake, we're going show you exactly whose hands are literally raking in millions of dollars in all this. >> all right. excellent report. one more quick point, "time" special co

. >> president obama is beefing up security. he invoked private sector to work with the government to prevent hacking. you look at that and say that's not going to come easy. there's time involved with that. you do this for a living. what do you think can be done right now? >> well, i think companies really need to invest in security. we deal with a lot of the fortune 100 and 1000 companies out there. it's never been easier to break into them. i can't think of a time and place where i've been stopped from breaking into an organization. i think companies really need to take security seriously and really focus on protecting the organizations and intellectual property because the government spt going to be able to do it for them. focusing on fixing high impact vulnerabilities and making sure they can protect their organizations. at the end of the day those seek res make us strong as an economy. these breaches are very, very, very common. we deal with breaches on wide scales all the time and almost always originating from the chinese government. >> pretty frightening. david mckenzie, thanks for y
originated in the obama white house but was approved by the house and the senate. in front of a sea of first responders in washington, the president today lashed out at republicans in congress saying if legislators don't come to an agreement, emergency services will take a hit. that was just one of a number of possible consequences the president listed off if the cuts are allowed to begin march 1st. he talked about fewer police and firefighters, longer airport security lines, lost jobs, criminals going free, teachers being laid off. democrats in the senate have proposed replacing the forced spending cuts with reduced defense spending and add to agriculture subsidies and more tax revenue for millionaires, but house republicans have rejected any increased taxes as solution. here's what the president had to say today about that. >> so far at least the idea is that the republicans have proposed asks nothing of the wealthiest americans or biggest corporations, so the burden is all on first responders or seniors or middle class families. they double down, in fact, on the harsh, harmful cuts that i

to the forced spending cuts to take effect in eight days. president obama made some talk radio appearances. >> whether or not we can move republicans at this point to do the right thing is what we're still trying to gauge. >> now, he's called the cuts severe and brutal. house speaker john boehner, guess what, completely agrees with that. he's called them deep and dangerous, but they're not doing anything about it. here's the thing about the cuts. they're going to hurt some people that nobody wants to hurt. people already in pain, more than 4 million homebound and disabled seniors may have to go without dinner this year because of cuts to meals on wheels programs in the forced cuts. 70,000 children from lower income families will not be able to enroll in preschools and day care centers because of the forced spending cuts. the owners of about 10,000 homes and small businesses destroyed by hurricane sandy won't get the money needed for repair and recovery. now, there are all kinds of things in the forced cuts, some of which you may agree with, but some of which all of us would find offensive.
